So you are in London now.
Is this the sentiment with most of the people you interact with?

There's another thread already talking about how they want a response from the White House.

That was a weak troll job. I'd just ignore it.

Yeah I'm skipping it and going to the source.

I have a good friend that works for Shell in London. I can shoot him an email.

Can you imagine what the reaction on this board would be if Hillary did this?

meh, maybe by the nihilists and soccer hooligans and the Georgeous crowd (what villains), but even her enemies respected her.

twitter is all over the place. my favorite is the blanket statements regarding how much she "hurt the poor." i'm certain that's borne out by the facts and figures....

I don't live too far from Eureka College, alma mater of Ronald Reagan. They have a "Reagan" conference every year and I was able to attend one two years ago. Great guests like Edwin Meece and Fred Barnes.

There was also a younger speaker (mid-30s I'd say) from England who talked about the Reagan-Thatcher connection. I asked him later if England celebrated Thatcher the way we do Reagan (generally speaking), and he said it wasn't close. That Thatcher wasn't really appreciated, just acknowledged. Longer answer than that, but that was the bottom line.

Not that he's the final word on the subject, but it was a bit of insight. I'd say the US as a whole (those of us 30 and up) hold her in higher esteem than the citizens she served. I wonder how their sentiment may change in the coming weeks following her death.

The United States' strongest ally, in my lifetime, was a Thatcher-led UK.

RIP "Iron Lady"
